Jamie Lee Thurston
Music is not a hobby to Jamie Lee Thurston. It’s the only thing. The act of performing music is how he enters and relates to the world. And when you watch him live, it’s as if you’re witnessing a red giant of a star form before you, drawing in all of the stardust and matter of the immediate universe to power its very being…even if only for a fraction of time.
Most musicians are great at one, maybe two parts of the musical quagmire, leaning in to those roles so far that the band and the creators and the pizazz surrounding them carry the rest. It is an admirable and well-orchestrated feat, to be sure, and one that’s been perfected for many decades of recorded music and live performance history. Music enthusiasts everywhere applaud their accomplishments, and love them all the same.
Thurston stands out as one of those rare performers that has achieved the next-to impossible: The Quadfecta.
He has perfected the multi-faceted roles of an entertainer, a vocalist, an instrumentalist, and a producer – an accomplishment unknown to most. And while he’s great at all four aspects at any given time, to see him achieve them all at once, live from the stage, is a truly monumental experience.
Peterson Farm Brothers
The Peterson Farm Bros are made up of Greg (28), Nathan (25), Kendal (22), and honorary “bro” Laura (18) Peterson. We are siblings who farm together with our parents near Assaria, KS. Ever since we began producing content, we have continued to realize a need to inform people about what we do in farming and in agriculture as a whole. There are many misconceptions about modern day farmers and we feel it is our calling to help correct some of those misconceptions. Aside from our production on social media, we travel around the country to speak on advocating for agriculture. We also blog about misunderstood topics in agriculture and open up our farm for tours. Through all of this we hope to educate the general public on where their food comes from and what a real Midwest family farm looks like!
